NASA researchers have discovered a potentially habitable Earth-sized exoplanet located around 300 light-years away, spotted by the Kepler space telescope between 2009 and 2018. It’s officially called Kepler-1649c and 1.06 times larger than Earth, receiving about 75% the amount of light that our planet gets from the sun. This means surface temperature of the exoplanet could be similar to that of Earth. Read more for a video and additional information.
It’s located within the habitable zone of its star, or the perfect distance where liquid water can exist on the surface, thus suggesting that it harbor life. However, it orbits a red dwarf star, which is much smaller and cooler than our own sun. The planet is also much closer to its star than Earth is to the sun, as it completes an orbit around its star every 19.5 Earth days. Unfortunately, this means the planet may be bombarded by radiation flares from the environment, threatening any potential life.

This intriguing, distant world gives us even greater hope that a second Earth lies among the stars, waiting to be found. The data gathered by missions like Kepler and our Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) will continue to yield amazing discoveries as the science community refines its abilities to look for promising planets year after year,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington.
